Post Covid travel trends from the global media

As travel changes in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we take a look at five major travel publications and what they are predicting our holidays will look like in the (hopefully) not-so-distant future.


Conde Nast Traveller

Tom Barber co-founder of Original Travel  recently wrote a feature for Conde Nast Traveller about six travel trends that he predicts will be big post-lockdown.  His six tips are:

  • Industry expertise will be more valuable than ever – book via a trusted travel agent
  • Sustainable travel will become a key consideration – ensure your hotel or resort is doing their part for the planet
  • Travellers will want their holidays to have meaning – figuring out a way to give back while having a bit of fun
  • Visit destinations that rely on tourism – helping to support the local economy directly
  • Longer trips will become more common – arrive at a destination and relax a few more days or turn it into a work-cation
  • People will crave holidays that offer connections – creating connections with each other and also the places you visit through new experiences

 

South China Morning Post

The South China Morning Post talks of trends around:

  • Ethical wildlife tourism
  • Less mass, more mind – highlighting the Travellers’ aversion to
    mass tourism and cookie-cutter travel experiences
  • More sustainable, compassionate and mindful operating systems after the Covid-19 pandemic

Asia Tatler

The trends from this Asia Tatler article include:

  • Travellers will be “searching for sanctuary, privacy and a greater
    sense of calm and peacefulness.”
  • Off-the-beaten track and natural destinations are sure to become
    even more in demand.
  • Travel for health and wellbeing - Andrea Oschetti from Blue Flower Travel shares with Tatler his prediction around “a rise in wellness travel with people realising, during this pandemic, how important and valuable good health is.”
  • Overall travelling with a greater sense of intention and meaning, those looking to explore the world of luxury travel will also want to engage and connect with local communities.

Forbes:

“In this post-Covid era, there are new trends emerging for how we will travel, with safety, privacy and seclusion all top of the ‘want list’.” Forbes

  • Luxurious remote resorts
  • Extended stays
  • Slow and sustainable
  • Practical safety and hygiene

“Ultimately, safety while traveling in the era of COVID-19 starts with sanitising
and face masks, and extends to thoroughly distanced or private experiences
whenever possible.” Departures

 

Why Bawah Reserve could be your ultimate post Covid getaway

If you are looking for a getaway with many of these new trends in mind then Bawah Reserve could be just the place for you. We are a boutique sustainable resort, a secluded sanctuary of nature and privacy. Located in the Anambas Archipelago in Indonesia, a country who relies heavily on the income generated through tourism.
